Completed pages {finally}

I print pictures on scrap paper before I scrap them.  I can print them on photo paper once I know what size will work best with my layout.  There a few downfalls to this method.  First, I get layouts done and then it takes me forever to get the pictures printed!  Secondly, I scrapped the same pictures twice (not just one set but several!).  And then there's the exceptionally long blog post with ALL the pretty layouts.  I do hope you enjoy them.

Oh, and a few cards that were still on the camera!


I had a great time in VA Beach, even though Hurricane Arthur shook our house.  The first trip to VA Beach was right after Sandy.  Our first night in the house we had no electric.  This was the first hurricane I actually experienced.  Okay, it was just lots of rain and very strong winds but it was still scary.  Laying in bed wondering if I should pack up and get out of there.  The house shook and shuddered.  I almost snuck downstairs to crawl in bed with my older sister - which I did as a kid.  But we made it through safely and no damage.


 Love the picture of my great-nephew in his "terminator" bunny mask.



 The first of many 5Ks.  My sisters are running a 1/2 Marathon this weekend and I'm so proud of them.  I have 2 more 5Ks scheduled for this year and one during the Pittsburgh marathon in May.
Have a wonderful day...week...month (not sure when I'll post again!).  Open your heart and let your creativity touch someone.  Susan

Cards 8-23-14

I was happy to get into my scrap room today. Trying to fill up my box to send to OperationWriteHome.com.  Over 320 cards already in there but there's still room.


 With these two I was playing with my inks...fading colors into each other.

Thanks for stopping by.  Take time and get crafty, Susan

Ninja Turtle hat

I saw this pattern on Facebook and knew my great-nephew would love it so off I went to get the yarn.  It's going into the mail tomorrow.

I love surprises!





I hope Benji enjoys it.  Thanks for stopping by, Susan

wedding album pages

My son got married in April and I made an 8x8 album for him and his beautiful bride.  Sorry to bombard you with ALL the pages at once but I don't get a chance to upload very often, so here goes......
























It was a beautiful wedding.  Thanks for stopping by, Susan
